Padmavati row: Supreme Court dismisses petition seeking a ban on film's release

Padmavati

Why Sanjay Leela Bhansali has very limited options in the Padmavati row

Meanwhile, Padukone will be seen alongside Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in "Padmavati", slated to hit theatres on 1st December. Recently, a Central Board of Film Certification member Arjun Gupta showed his resentment on the film and wrote a letter regarding it to Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

In the video, the director said, "This movie embroiled in so many controversies because of some rumour".

Soon after the judgement of SC, Girraj Singh Lotwara, the president of Shri Rajput Sabha (which is the supreme body of the Rajputs), said that they won't be responsible if the director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is beaten up by somebody now.

The petition, filed through advocate Somesh Chandra Jha, urged the court to intervene as the filmmaker has "wrongly depicted" Rani Padmavati in the movie.

The former royal family of Jaipur had also opposed release of the film "if historical facts are distorted". No community will be able to tolerate it and this is why distributors across the country have started giving the cold shoulder to this film, the BJP leader added.

The Rajasthan government plans to set up a committee to watch Sanjay Leela Bhansali's forthcoming controversial movie Padmavati. "The committee will watch the movie and will identify the scenes in the film that may hurt the sentiments of public", Rajasthan home minister Gulab Chand Kataria told IANS.

Earlier this week, a BJP parliamentarian from Madhya Pradesh warned of possible violence if the film is not blocked. People staged protests against the film and burnt Bhansali's effigy and shouted slogans against him in front of the district collector's office in Bharatpur. It further said that the producers of the film had taken undue liberty and completely changed the historical facts, dubbing it as "highly objectionable". As per reports, film's set and shooting equipment were damaged in the attacks.
